Fifteen of us went for our family Christmas meal the Sunday before Christmas. The meal was beautiful with a good choice of all courses. I have allergies and I had gone down beforehand to discuss my menu and everything was exactly as I had requested. The views are amazing as we are right beside Loch Lomond. All our party were...

A repeat visit to Duck Bay whilst on holiday locally. it never fails to deliver - great food with excellent service. Really can't fault at all. We had the fish and chips and sesame crusted salmon with chips. Chips are 'real homemade' not some mass produced substitute. Followed by banana split and creme brûlée. Not quite sure how we managed...

I have always thought highly of Duck Bay, however on a recent return visit for breakfast I was not satisfied. First point, around 95% of the restaurant was empty, the other 5% was 4 tables of elderly diners in the corner of the whole restaurant - we walked in with a 4 month old baby and 2 year old toddler,...

This time we took the Loch Lomond Suite; nothing could possibly be better, the generous proportions, cleanliness, view and a wonderfully comfortable bed just made for a perfect stay. The WIFI signal could have been a bit stronger but we did have access 24hrs a day, and we were on holiday, so not such a big deal

Stopped here while visiting Loch Lomond for Breakfast. Catered for vegetarian and non-vegetarian. My non-veg breakfast is probably the best breakfast I've had, eggs done to perfection, with beautiful Haggis. Would highly recommend if you are passing this way.

Location location location. You cannot beat the he view from the restaurant it's stunning. Lunch by the large picture windows really adds to the experience. Good selection on the menu with reasonable prices. Service was efficient and friendly well worth the visit.

As the title says, lovely location. It is situated right on Loch Lomond and the views over the loch are spectacular. However the rest of this place is decidedly mediocre. Although the room we had had a gal only, I would have gladly sacrificed this for somewhere to put my backs, literally nowhere for them, they just fitted between the...

Disappointing lunch, food seemed pre prepared well in advance a couple next to us ordered and no sooner than they had their food arrived. I felt it was expensive for what I received in the past I was always more than happy. Saved by the views only and a tip to one of our servers try making the scowling and...
